I'm patching HEAD code in this sense.  For this purpose, I decided to 
hijack the add_soc parameter of entry_schema_check() that controlled 
adding the structural objectClass.  In fact, in the current code so far 
I couldn't find any call to that function where the structural 
objectClass had to be added and the naming attributes hadn't.  If this 
distinction becomes necessary the parameter can be used as a mask 
instead of a boolean.

re23 claims to comply with rfc 2251-2256, and knows nothing of rfc 
4510-4519, so IMHO it shouldn't be affected.
